We heart italo disco


A chance encounter on Facey-B chat last night has prompted this 80’s themed post. The conversation ended up with me being given this AMAZING 1984 disco classic – I think I listened to it about ten times in a row until I knew all the words (and the air-bassline). It’s soooo good!! It was also pointed out to me that it’s the kind of music that you’d hear at an orgy. I didn’t enquire as to how they would know such a thing…

Escape from New York – Fire in my heart

In keeping with the disco theme, here’s a better known italo-disco track from the early 80’s. It’s been receiving plays by numerous DJ’s lately (Erol Alkan and James Murphy to name just two) and rightly so, it’s a true classic. I’m loving all these 80’s classics that are rearing their heads once again.

Charlie – Spacer Woman

Now that your appetite has been well and truly wetted(?), here’s another 80’s classic that’s been getting a caning recently…

Talking Heads – This must be the place (Naive Melody)

Last but not least, here’s a lovely chilled track from 1979. OK – so it’s not from the 80’s but it’s pretty close right? Let’s just say Sylvester must have been ahead of her time…

Sylvester – I need somebody to love tonight
